Hello, Happy Home {CSI Case File No. 113}

I'm a little late posting last week's page I created for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. This Case File is still open until midnight tomorrow.

Clues I used: ledger paper, camera, hearts, stars, birds, scallops, envelope (on back for journaling), pen work, stripes. Testimony: Put journaling in an envelope, and all three inspiration words.

I created another page for my mom's album. For those who don't know, my stepdad died the day after Christmas. I'm writing the journaling as if Ed were speaking to her and tucking those stories into an envelope adhered to the back of each layout.

I used this sketch that I found at Grand Diva's Creative Corner:

Here are some details: The little frames, of course, are by Dear Lizzy. The speech bubbles are from another American Crafts paper. The blue papers are by Love, Elsie (ledger) and Simple Stories (dots and stripes), and American Crafts (the triangles). The pink heart paper is Pebbles, and the text paper is by Studio Calico. And of course the little wood veneer bird is by Studio Calico.

The stars are also by Studio Calico. Those fabric covered chipboard letters are Thickers, and the hearts are old Heidi Swapp hearts.

That little camera clip is by Prima. I tucked an ANCIENT epoxy sticker by Autumn Leaves MOD in there. That little heart tab came from the inside of the frames I cut out. The grid stamp is Kaiser Craft.

I added some words to the background with roller stamps by American Crafts. The pink paper at the bottom was from a tear strip at the bottom of a paper, and It wasn't wide enough, so I just used two pieces. Those circle elements were cut on my Silhouette Cameo. 

I haven't yet had time to write the journaling, but it's going to be about how much Ed loved his home with my mom.
